    Time has come and now today, I drove Chiron on the track.
    I can only say this.
    Chiron is above everything.

    Most remarkable thing about it is how it handles through corners.
    In most cases, one throws the car into apex touching grip limit, wait until mid corner, then as you clear out mid, and see the track out, you floor it to max the use of surface.

    In Chiron, you throw the car, and front bites with full grip level and then as you reach the mid corner and pass the mid, car suddenly has more grip left to be used. This is when you apply throttle. But it is so unlike any other, I feel like I must have entered the corner too slow. Did it again and again, with my limited skill I can only assume I must put down power early at mid corner. I was right.
    But this time the input of gas pedal mattered. Car had so much torque, it needs light and sensitive touch, which my skill was not up to this level of sensitivity.
    With more laps, I could track out to the limit of tarmac but still, I am wondering it is the right way.

    Chiron is on another level. With short 1 hr track drive couldn't reveal what this car is all about.
    It handles like GT3 believe it or not, and goes like no other and requires very skillful driving but confidence inspiring at the same time.

    After today, my beloved tdf is just mere car with 4 wheels.

    I have to have to have to buy one....

    Now, deposit is done for the car and waiting for dealer setup in my area.
    Once they are up and running, I will pay in full for the car.
    Also while doing this, I want to deposit for another one. Which car is more suitable for deposit guys?

    1. Super sport
    2. Grand sport or convertable
    3. Final edition whatever it be.

    I would ask convertable but I also want this next car to be made in 2024-25.

    I'd say the super sport. Not a fan of the convertible veyron.

    Will the supersport be the long tail one that broke the 300mph record?

    if you can afford an SS and some how can get an allocation then it's a no brainer

    Can you tell me more about it?
    Is it a better car? Better investment?
    Or are there any insights I should consider? I am lost.

    only a handful of cars, first 300mph production car and $4m

    investment wise who knows but it's a special car so has potential.
